Time Capsule

Once and a while I let myself fall for the occasional original finish Breyer. More recently those urges have been for the animal collections Breyer has produced over the years. I had been secretly wanting the elephant produced for the bicentennial year. I happened upon it most recently for sale online in a sealed box. It was something I just couldn't pass up for my OF collection. I also couldn't resist photographing the unveiling. It felt like I was going back in time for a short spell.

Saw the light of day in 1976

No turning back once it starts to peel

Awww....the good lo days of a
plastic bagged Breyer!
I really miss those easy boxes!

My new OF and prized collector's manual.
The manual is a pure bonus!
